Fox Violet: With vocals oozing gritty angst!

Fox Violet - Torn

Fox Violet is described like this; «Marvelously wrought, Prisms amalgamates spectral dream-pop with haunting electro-rock savors, all capped by the sumptuous voice of Thea Stevenson». (Celebmix).

«Stevenson’s vocals ache, thick with emotion and heartbreak as she explores universal pain. While less propulsive and hook-filled than their previous single, Fox Violet’s latest effort cuts deep, exposing a fragile emotional core and a singular poignant power». (Under The Radar).

«With vocals oozing gritty angst, all the while maintaining an ethereal tone, listeners can expect to get lost in the sounds of infectious rock instrumentation as the artist offers deep introspective contemplations throughout». (Wonderland Magazine).

London-born, LA-based dreamy, alt/rock act Fox Violet blends ambient, ethereal vibes with dark pop rock hooks and soulful vocals that pack a dissonant punch on her new  soulful video Torn, from the forthcoming album  Prisms.

Central songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist, Thea Juliette, reveals, «The record is a kaleidoscope; a re-interpretation of my subconscious. Each song examines disparate aspects of a relationship break down. A soul mate breakdown. It’s like I’m on a train and each stop is a different song, a different part of the story, and I’m looking out at myself but I can’t reach her. It’s an out of body experience. It is a culmination of many relationships in my life including the difficult relationship I have with myself. I was rootless and homeless for a period of time and this underpins everything too. I’m inspired by how loss changes us».

In an interview with LA Weekly, Juliette explains, «I wanted the music to be instrumentally wild and lyrically as questioning and unapologetic as I wanted. We live in a dark time, in a weird city, I don’t want to shy away from that. FV is as much about dissonance as it is resonance. It exists for opposites».

Landing high praise from LA Weekly, Buzz Music, Blurred Culture, York Calling, and more, she has also received heavy rotation on cult radio stations in NYC and Chicago (Que4Radio), as well in the UK and Australia as a buzz band to watch. She has been featured extensively on top Spotify playlists including an official HBO playlist for cult show favorite Industry. She is influenced by Radiohead, Nirvana, Lana Del Rey, Leonard Cohen, and Pink Floyd, lyrics examine lucid dreaming, apathy, and our cultural obsession with fairy tales. With soaring layered psychedelic guitars and crunchy synths Fox Violet crafts bold stories that are other-worldly, relatable,  and raw. 

Fox Violet has played at famous venues around SoCal, and with new music on the horizon, FV plans to tour in 2022. She has also co-written with award winning songwriters including SOCAN award winning musician Julien Martre (who previously worked with The Matrix). Stay tuned for new material and announcements throughout the remainder of 2021.


About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
